Online Conference

The online conference on Recent advances on nitrogen activation and conversion (N2X) took place on March 31st & April 1st 2021.

The activation and conversion of nitrogen gas molecules to valuable ammonia and other reduced products at temperatures and pressures lower than the benchmark Haber-Bosch process remains a challenge. However, the field of nitrogen reduction has made impressive strides over the last five years. Novel promising approaches, both homogeneous and heterogeneous, have been demonstrated and international collaborations are pushing the field towards standardization of data reporting and benchmarking protocols. As this research community continues to grow, it is imperative that we provide a forum to present and discuss the path forward. This symposium will bring experimentalists, theoreticians and engineers together for in-depth discussions on state-of-the-art product quantification methods and catalytic systems. The ePoster session provided the younger generation of scientists the opportunity to network, exchange ideas and perhaps establish new collaborations that will increase the momentum in the field of nitrogen reduction.

Topics to be covered by the conference:
  • Homogeneous approaches for nitrogen activation
  • Heterogenous systems for nitrogen conversion
  • Challenges and opportunities in catalyst benchmarking
  • Advances in theoretical methods for mechanistic understanding
  • Rare-earth element systems for nitrogen activation
